The Rhine Restaurant's
By Angelica Montgomery
from the squawking demands of the working world is the Rhine's sedate
space of flowers, candles, incense, and glimmering lanterns. Dim
lights drip from a dark wood ceiling; hands touch at the quiet tables
in the shadows.
Rhine on Wufu 2nd Road, open for the past 15 years, is one
of Kaohsiung's few 24-hour restaurants. The soothing atmosphere
no doubt draws a soft sigh from many guests as they come in
after working late.
cuisine rotates between a daytime and a nighttime menu, and
is inspired by French, Italian and Japanese cooking. The wine,
however, comes exclusively from France.
from the daytime menu (available from 6 am to 10 pm) include
Rack Of Lamb With Parsley And Garlic for NT$400 and Chicken
Frontierre-Style for NT$230. Into the night, diners nibble
on a number of stir fries and set meals for between NT$180
and NT$220 and noodles and soups for NT$200-280.
of 10 can enjoy a nine-course meal, including seafood, steak, salad,
and drink, for NT$6000. Groups of twenty can use the private room
on the second floor, while larger gatherings get full use of the
third floor, including plush couches and a karaoke machine.
first floor has a number of little shops, offering candles, pottery,
and fashions with an Indian flavor.
addition to the 24-hour establishment on Wufu 2nd Road, there are
two other Rhine restaurants in Kaohsiung, both of which keep more
conventional hours. See the listings on page 39 for details.
